Cloudy day in Kelowna


Recommended Posts

Also cool.  We did a short 55km ride through the vineyards.  We still had a beautiful ride with a Great Lake view all the way. 8500 ft of climbing.

Tomorrow is supposed to start three days of beautiful weather. I haven't planned any shenanigans yet but I will get some riding in. My bike is still in my car so if my road hasn't improved I'll haul it somewhere to start my ride. I might do some kayaking too. The only thing on my schedule is a full body massage at noon tomorrow and getting the stitches out from my skin graft on Tuesday.

8500 ft of climbing? I know people that haven't reached that in their lifetime. I get about 1,800 ft in my favorite 30 mile  loop from my house.

Ha!  Th Okanagan has a lot of mountains to climb.  That and the dry air is what makes it such wonderful place to cycle.

There are few "mountains" here in my part of CT but the land is not flat.  Think of those egg crate foam pads people put on beds.  There are rollers everywhere.  I have one 15 mile loop that includes 1500 ft of net climbing.  Even my "flat" rail trail isn't really flat.  The grades tend to be no greater than 3% but on a recent ride of only 10 miles with an overall elevation change of 300 ft my gps reported almost 1000 feet of net climbing.

I know it.  I agree with you.  Okanagan is a wonderful place.

I miss PedalJoy, she was a real cyclist and joined before she realized this was mostly old men who owned or once owned bikes but didn’t talk much about bikes. She didn’t stay long.

I'm a little surprised @wilbur hasn't posted in this thread. I am sure cabin boy has something to say about it.

Yes, and once Canada Day and a few obligations in town are done, I shall ne there.  For a bit anyways.  Okanagan is beautiful in the summer.
